Tesla’s latest software update sports two new interesting features that can potentially prevent damage to the car as well as the driver. 

According to the latest release notes, the update (2022.20) will enable Tesla vehicles to scan the road ahead of potholes and adjust the suspension to account for rough roads.

This feature can be updated by selecting “Comfort” under the Adaptive Suspension Damping setting. But this being said, the setting may not work in every scenario. “This adjustment may occur at various locations, subject to availability, as the vehicle downloads rough road map data generated by Tesla cars,” the release notes state according to Not a Tesla App.

According to reports, this particular software update is not applicable to Autopilot or Full Self-Driving, meaning the vehicle won’t try to steer around or avoid road damage. 

What’s more, is that the update also includes a green light chime to help combat driver distraction. This new feature may help eliminate incidents of road rage or reduce the likelihood that facing honks from motorists waiting behind you. The green light feature will only work with vehicles that are equipped with the hardware 3.0 computer, or self-driving computer.
